FAQ’S Mooresville Junior Golf Program

What are the advantages of a Youth Golf Program?

We all want our kids to develop into responsible adults. The game of golf has at its core a standard of behavior that lends itself to positive development. Personal skills such as honesty, integrity, courtesy and respect are all present in golf, regardless of the level of competition. Golf teaches kids to use good judgment and be responsible for their actions. It also encourages the highest level of sportsmanship. What other sport allows you to call a penalty on yourself with examples of this very thing being demonstrated on the biggest stages of the game? In addition to the scholarships that colleges and universities offer directly to the accomplished golfers coming out of high school, there are numerous avenues to receive monies that can be used to help with the cost of higher education. Equipment manufacturers, State golf associations, and junior golf organizations, are all on the list of sources that offer anything from $500 for books to a full-ride scholarship to the student’s school of choice.  In many cases, skill level is not a determining factor for receiving an award: involvement in the game, good grades, community service, and employment at a golf facility can all be reasons for becoming a scholarship winner.

When was the last time you played a game of tackle football with your son or field hockey with your daughter? Golf is a game that families can learn and play together, and because of the handicap system that was created to determine a golfer’s playing ability and potential, moms and dads can actually compete with their children even if they play from different tee boxes or at significantly different skill levels. Golf is a great low-impact way to develop the cardio activity, core stability, balance and focus that is necessary to function effectively from day-to-day.

Why have I noticed a rate increase?
There will be a small increase in some youth programs offered starting 2014. This will be the first price increase in over 2 years for junior golf programs at Mooresville Golf Course. The YGF of NC and Mooresville Golf Course plan keep pricing at a competitive level while offering more added value in their golf programs.
What is included in our yearly membership fee?
Registered youth from 1/1/2016 to 12/31/2016 will have the privilege to play Mooresville GC & Twin Oaks GC for $5 any time of the year. YGF Members will also recieve $2 off Range Buckets, Mini Golf, and Par 3 course at the Mooresville Golf Range! Membership fees also help offset the cost of student uniform pieces, instruction fees, youth prizes, and lesson supplies. 
What benefits will students receive?
All registered students will receive benefits such as $5 greens fees, golf club usage, and opportunities for other youth related events. By keeping the golf program more internally with the golf course, it will open the door for future incentives and benefits for all the youth.
Who are the Coaches?
The coaching staff will still be lead by PGA Professional Mike Abate and PGA Professionals Jeremy Elliot and Charlie Roberts of Mooresville Golf Club. Assistance will also be provided by LPGA professionals, Volunteers, and Student Coaches.
What is the Dress Code?
There is no specific dress code; however we encourage all of our participants to dress according to the weather for their comfort. Collared shirts and golf apparel are always encouraged! NO athletic spikes such as soccer, football, or baseball cleats. Golf shoes always encouraged, if you do not have golf shoes, tennis shoes or sneakers are perfect.
Do we have class if the weather is bad?
Regardless of the weather we always attempt to have class!. If there is poor weather we will have our class inside the club house, making it a productive learning experience. Activities will include but not limited to: Indoor Putting & Swing Instruction, Golf Trivia Games, Golf Rules & Etiquette, and Golf Movies. In the event of a canceled class will will notify participants by phone and or e-mail. 


What are the class sizes and what happens when they are full?
Registration will stop once that particular class is full. Class sizes will depend on the number of Coaches and the type of curriculum offered. A waiting list will be offered once the class is full.
Can I volunteer for the program?
Volunteers are always needed and can be used in a vast majority of ways to help the program. All volunteers go through a background check and placed into their area of strength.
Can I make donations to the program?
Donations are always accepted and help keep the cost of the program down while giving opportunities to those youth in need. Monetary donations can help those youth in need with programming scholarships. Donations help benefit and prepare youth for the game of golf!  Contributions/ Donations/ Gifts to the YGF of NC/LKN Junior Golf Association are not tax deductable as charitable contributions, however they may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses.
Do we need golf clubs?
If the student does not have golf clubs we will provide a set for them during class hours. Sets are available ages 4 through 17. Left handed and Right handed available. No cost for rentals
What color tees should we play from?
The "tee markers color" is just a reference, not a universal recommendation from course to course.
The set of "tees" a golfer plays from should be determined by their ability. As their ability changes they can change the set of tees they play from. We recommend playing from whatever set of tees you are most comfortable from. Another tip is to take you average 5 iron distance and multiple it by 36. That total number would be a great estimate for your recommended "total yardage".
